- 4 slices thick sourdough bread, crust removed
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/3 cup coconut sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil, optional butter
- Combine coconut sugar and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Set aside.
- Slice bread into bite size cubes, about 8 cubes per slice. Whisk together eggs, milk, and vanilla until well combined. Dip cubes in the mixture just to coat the outside, being careful not to soak the cubes.
- Place cubes on a plate.
- Add 1 tablespoon coconut oil to a large non-stick skillet, turn to medium heat. Add half the cubes and cook on all sides until golden, about 3 minutes. Immediately dust with sugar and cinnamon mixture. Add the remaining coconut oil and repeat the process.
- If desired, serve bites with pure maple syrup.
